Alumni Relations

Dear Alumnus,

The Alumni Relations Team interacted with thousands of graduates at events, through personal visits, campus tours, emails, written and telephonic communication as well as via various social media platforms in 2019.

The Durban Alumni Association AGM held on the Howard College campus, the various talks and tours co-ordinated by the Durban Alumni Association, the April and September 2019 Graduation ceremonies, the Cape Town Alumnus Dinner, the Job Skills and Leadership Skills Workshops, the “Movie Evening” at Musgrave Centre in Durban, the South Coast Alumnus Lunch, the Mpumalanga Alumnus Lunch, the Pretoria and Johannesburg Alumnus events and the Botswana Alumnus Lunch were all most successful and rewarding in terms of attendance and feedback from alumni.

The country specific Facebook pages for alumni based in the United Kingdom, the USA, Australia, New Zealand, Canada and Lesotho are  active. Please let us know if you would like to join these Facebook groups.  There has also been considerable interest in the main Facebook page for all alumni - please do not forget to like us.

Communication via the websiteFacebookTwitter and SMS has increased and is an effective way of informing graduates of UKZN events and issues. The alumni Linkedin page has been closed, you can now join us on the UKZN Linkedin pageIn order to invite alumni to the planned events and to keep everyone updated on University events – we are eager to secure the current contact details of alumni – especially email addresses and mobile telephone numbers. Also, please encourage any friends or relatives who are graduates and have not received any correspondence from the University in recent months to provide us with their updated contact details. This can be done via a quick email to or the website 

We look forward to interacting with you and seeing you at some of the events planned during 2020!

With our very best wishes, 
The Alumni Relations Team.
